Lok Sabha was adjourned till noon on Wednesday after uproar by opposition members on the alleged farm loan waiver scam.
As soon as the House met, members of BJP and Left were on their feet raising the issue of the findings of a CAG report with regard to the scheme to waive loans of farmers totalling up to Rs 52,000 crore.
BJP members led by deputy leader Gopinath Munde raised slogans against the government. They were joined by CPI(M) members.
AIADMK members were in the aisle raising the issue of plight of ethnic Tamils in Sri Lanka.
As Speaker Meira Kumar called for the Question Hour, BJP and SP members trooped into the Well demanding immediate discussion on the farm loan waiver issue.
With members unrelenting, the speaker adjourned the House till noon.
The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report on the scheme has said several ineligible farmers were favoured and a large number of deserving small and marginal farmers left out in implementation of the loan waiver scheme.
